Ghormeh Sabzi


I have made Ghormeh Sabzi before with chicken.  For some reason, I don't remember it tasting as good as this time.  


I remember it being almost too herby.  This was a great recipe.  It was flavorful and delicious.  I made it a few weeks ago and still remember its wonderful taste.

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Chips and Reese's Baking Cups and Reese's Pieces Candy


It has been awhile since I posted.  I had some family in town for a bit and then I went to Universal Studios to see the Harry Potter themed sections.


It was wonderful to see family.  We explored the city a little bit and saw a play.  The time went by too quickly.  Universal Studios was lots of fun.  I spend so much money on Harry Potter merchandise.  I think I spend about $50 dollars on candy alone.  Given that all the prices are inflated at a theme park, I didn't actually buy that much candy.  Each chocolate frog was ten bucks.

Crustless Spinach Quiche


I don't make enough egg dishes.  Eggs are so versatile.  They are tasty and healthy too.  They are also pretty cheap for a protein.  


I made this dish a couple of weeks ago for a brunch.  I used my pie pan, which I seldom use.  I think that needs to change as well.  Especially since my parents gave me a pie cookbook for my birthday several months ago, and I still haven't used it.

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef


I made these barbecue beef a couple of weeks ago.  It is a whole 30 recipe.  It is the first whole 30 recipe I have ever made.  I'm not entirely sure what that name even means.



I believe whole 30 does not have any carbs or sugar but that could be another diet.  Maybe it is just an older diet with a new name.

Peanut Butter Cookies with Reese's Baking Cups and Reese's Pieces Candy



There is supposedly a hurricane heading near where I live later this week.  I don't believe we will see any of the hurricane, but I believe it will be very wet.  We have already received lots of rain the last couple of weeks.



I'm usually not very prepared for storms.  I usually just cross my fingers that the electricity doesn't go out.  I have purchased a case of bottled water, I own a flash light, and I have trail mix.  I think I am good to go.

Granny Kellett's Jam Cake


Several years ago for Christmas I got a cookbook called American Cakes.  It has been a very fun book.  The book is organized and grouped chronologically.  The author writes about the history and back ground of each recipe, and then shares a recipe for each cake using measurements and techniques modern readers can replicate.


I have baked a number of cakes from this cookbook.  I baked the tunnel of fudge cake for my last birthday.  For by birthday two years ago, I made the hummingbird cake.  The first cake I made was the cherry upside-down cake.  I made it with my mother at Christmas just after receiving the cookbook.

Creamy Bacon Pea Pecan Salad


Another week has just flown by.  The weather where I live has been so incredible the last few days.  It feels like Fall.  It isn't here for good though.  Next week it is supposed to heat up again.


I have just started a certificate program.  It meets all day most Saturdays until the end of the year.  It has been a good experience so far, but it makes my weekends much less relaxing.  I actually had class three hours on Friday evening and then again on Saturday from 9 am to 4:30 pm.
